About the trip

Explore an estuary and feast on barbecue

  • Delicious food and drink

Your Day

As any kayaker will tell you, a great day on the water will leave you with a growling appetite. This outing is designed to fulfill your thirst for water exploration and satisfy your hunger for a barbecue. Navigate the Hudson River Estuary after receiving instruction on kayaking safety and paddling techniques. This beautiful stretch of river, located near the banks of West Point and Storm King Mountain, is rich in natural beauty and American history. Lush trees frame the river, and bald eagles can often be seen soaring overhead as you make your way to a private barbecue. The sandy beach will greet your feet and grilled delights will refresh your taste buds. Grilled shrimp, skewered chicken, fresh fruit and vegetables will dot the menu. Cold beverages, a barbecue feast, and summertime tunes will make you feel like you are more than just a day trip away from Manhattan.

Perfect for: New kayakers, adventurers looking for a unique day on the water
